1.can i overclock this processor using this motherboard?

2.if can,do i need a new cooler for the processor ? or i can overclock with the stock cooler?

3. when my pc boot up,it show's the processor speed as 1700mhz (200x8.5)
and i cheked in the bios also show 1700mhz (200x8.5)

yes, as ZZFH said, both are very overclockable, on stock cooler you can get a moderate overclock, if you opt for an aftermarket cooler than you can go a little higher. Check this link for any questions you might have...

Happy Overclocking!
